The Adventures of Sally


Published March 8, 2009


LibriVox recording of The Adventures of Sally by P.G. Wodehouse.
Read by Kara Shallenberg.

This romantic comedy stars a young American girl named Sally, who inherits a considerable fortune and finds her life turned upside down. The typically Wodehouseian cast includes Sally’s ambitious brother, an assortment of theater people, a pair of English cousins, and, of course, an Uncle. It’s jolly good fun! (Summary by Kara and Wikipedia)

Subject: PG and Kara Shallenberg!
All right!!! KS is a one of my very favorite readers. I liked this book more and more as it went along - but the ending came rather abruptly - suddenly Sally was married to Ginger! One oddity was the jocular way the Spanish Influenza was referred to. I think that part must have been written in the very earliest days before the horror of that pandemic became manifest in 1918-19, tho the book was not printed until afterwards, 1922.

Subject: his best?
Of all Wodehouse's books, I think this may be his best & funniest. And even with somewhat more depth than his norm.

Subject: PG Wodehous is a great author
...and Karen reads him rather well.

Subject: Wonderful Story
I must admit, with each new Wodehouse book I listen to, I am becoming a diehard fan. :-)

Sally is an honest-hearted girl who seeks to help others and always looks at the positive side of any situation. Enter Ginger who makes a muddle of everything. Who else could see the positive aspects of someone like that besides Sally?

A positively wonderful story, the narrator does a wonderful job with reading and voices. Enjoy!

Subject: Delightfully funny tale
This is a delightfully funny story about an intelligent, honest, strong and warm-hearted woman. The cast of characters is quite a contrast to our young heroine and set her off nicely.

Kara Schallenberg gives another excellent reading - you can tell that she is enjoying Sally's adventures as much as her listeners are.

A very witty book, read extremely well. Ms Shallenberg has the perfect voice for Sally.
